There seems to be ongoing confusion,
regarding the ministry of good works.
After all, Christianity is a lifestyle
and responsibility must not be shirked.

Don’t be deceived by the religious leaders
saying ‘it doesn’t matter in what you believe’.
For the righteousness of Christ is available,
as soon as His promise, you willingly receive.

We are clearly taught within The Word,
that ‘real faith without works is dead’.
Although there is value with good deeds,
acts of Love should not swell one’s head.

We can be redeemed from Hell’s fiery pit
and easily avoid spiritual devastation.
For we are not saved by our human actions,
but by acceptance… of His gift of Salvation.




Author Notes:

Loosely based on:
Jam 2:14-26; John 8:24; Rom 10:10; Acts 16:31

We do good works because we are saved, not because we want to be saved by works...there is only one way to be saved, through Jesus, by Gods Grace and Him dying for us on the cross at Calvary, and He rose on the third day and today He is in Heaven at the right hand of God...so if you are saved, by Gods grace, by receiving Jesus as your Savior, keep doing those good works to show and tell others you are a child of God...James
